How to Select a New Water Heater

Although it would be nice, there’s no way the appliances in your home will last forever. A water heater is no different. In fact, these tend to have a fairly long lifespan considering how much they’re used. But no matter how well you maintain your water heater, there will come a day when you must replace it. Follow these tips to make sure you get the best one for your home.

  • Start by considering which fuel you’ll use. Do you currently have an electric water heater or a gas one? Is there any reason why you’d want to switch?
  • How much does energy efficiency matter? Water heaters are built with various levels of efficiency. More efficient ones tend to cost a little more upfront but will save you more on your energy bills.
  • What size do you need? This depends on how many people live in your house. For example, you want to make sure you’ll have a hot water supply that will allow everyone to comfortably take a shower.
  • Decide what you’re willing and able to spend. Cost is a factor for many homeowners. Take a look at your options and decide which one gives you the most bang for your buck.
